THE YOGA BEGINNER'S KIT

 

Yoga is a popular exercise that combines breathing, movement, and meditation. Imported to the United States from India over a century ago, yoga has long been praised for its physical and spiritual benefits. 

Research shows yoga can help manage stress, ease depression and anxiety, improve mood, and enhance the quality of sleep. In addition, yoga has been shown to increase flexibility, improve balance and coordination, reduce pain, and increase strength.

Taking your first yoga class may seem overwhelming, but IS not intimidating if you know what to expect. A typical yoga class begins with breathing exercises as a warm-up, moves onto poses for the bulk of the class, and ends with meditation as a cool down.

GETTING STARTED

With any new venture, the problem is taking the first step. When it comes to physical exercise for women, one of the best activities is yoga. You can start very small and just get into the swing of things. The best way is to join a yoga group for support and motivation (and advice!). However, to avoid intimidation, just start at home.

Browse around the YOGASHOP links you can see on this page. It might help you to "get into the yoga mood"! If nothing else, you will enjoy browsing around and maybe you will find some small item which motivates you to take the next step. After all it is about your own health and wellbeing.
